All college campuses hold events that depict the various bridges to progress and success 
in the lives of their students. SCC is no different. Orientation introduces freshmen to the 
institution of higher learning; College and University Days expose students to and prepare 
them for the senior colleges and universities to which they may later transfer; Student 
Appreciation Day involves a day of spring festivities to commemorate students for their 
contributions; Graduation recognizes the achievements of those who have completed 
degree requirements. 

Other special events (such as the Foreign Language Festival coordinated by the French 
and Spanish classes; the SG A -sponsored Halloween, Christmas and Easter activities; the 
Phi Theta Kappa inductions) further illustrate the involvement and development of 
college students. These, along with studies, jobs, Bports, and social activities make well- 
rounded and properly prepared individuals who will then face the real world and provide 
another link in the future of the state, the country, and perhaps even the world.

Everyone wants to get into the action. 

The SCC Nursing Department's lead 
instructors are dedicated to standards 
of excellence. These standards are re- 
flected by the academic achievements 
of their students who have consistently 
maintained an overall 97 percent pass 
rate on state board examinations since 
1982. Graduates of two-year and four- 
year institutions take the same board 
exams to become licensed registered 

Such an outstanding reputation can 
be attributed to the department's high- 
ly qualified staff. All full-time lead in- 
structors earned master's degrees by 
1976, 13 years before the 1990 deadline 
established by the N.C. State Board of 
Nursing. The personal and professional 
standards these instructors set make 
them a credit to nursing and to SCC. 
For these reasons, the 1990 Lancer is 
proudly dedicated to these leaders. 

4 Dedication 


In assessing 
— the staff, 
Beverly Essick, 
chairman of the 
Health Occupa- 
tions Division, 
stated, "The 
nursing instructors are very dedicated, very 
conscientious. I can honestly say that they 
are interested in the student's welfare and 
are willing to go the extra mile. They are 
professional nurses who are competent in 
their fields."

You can find Dr. Swanson Richards 

anywhere on campus talking to students 

about their problems. Dr. Richards is a man 

who really cares about the students' needs as 

well as the faculty's. His dedication to the 

students, the faculty, the staff, and the 

community is an overwhelming qualification 

for an excellent president. 

Dr. Richards has been at SCC for 

seventeen years and has served many other 

positions in the Surry County school system. 

He is a graduate of Appalachian State 

University (B. S. M, A.) and Florida State

Surry Community ushered in a 
stylistic fall quarter August 30. Ori- 
entation Day allows freshmen to ac- 
quaint themselves with faculty and 
the campus. Plenty of new faces ap- 
peared as fulltime enrollment 
reached about 2,700. 

The program began with an intro- 
duction of faculty. Former heavy- 
weight boxing champion James 
"Bonecrusher" Smith then delivered 
an inspirational message stressing 
educational commitment. 

Various workshops were offered 
and students were encouraged to at- 
tend at least two. College transfer 
students also familiarized them- 
selves with their faculty advisors. 

The gym and patio were decorated 
with balloons from artist Chris Blan- 
kenship; and guitarist/folk singer/ 
humorist Brian Huskey provided the 
entertainment. The day closed with 
a picnic lunch.

fer, meets with student advisees Following the

won in 1986.

There are two or these large tables set up on the patio filled with goodies such as hamburgers, hot dogs, all the trimmings, potato 
chips, potato salad, baked beans, and chocolate chip cookies. The lines are both long with impatient, ravenous people all ready to fill 
their plates like this student does.

Faculty advisors, Ms, Gupton, Mr. Hinshaw, and Mb. Shepherd wait patiently in the 
gym to meet with the students they will be advising for the next few quarters at SCC, 

Orientation 9 


SCC was host to approximately 60 college 
representatives and students from five area 
high schools, September 12, 1989. SCC stu- 
dents were also welcomed. The college repre- 
sentatives promoted enrollment in their 
schools and supplied school pamphlets and 
catalogs for future assistance. 

Sue Jarvis, College Transfer Counselor, 
stated, "The purpose of College Day is to 
provide an opportunity for high school sen- 
iors and SCC students to gather first hand 
information about colleges in North Carolina 
and surrounding states." 

College Day was a benefit to students at- 
tending and is being planned annually.

SCC hosted ten of the sixteen 
state -supported universities of North 
Carolina Wednesday, Oct. 4, 1989, at 
University Day, 

University Day gives college trans- 
fer students an opportunity to obtain 
information and to talk with college 

Sarah Draughn, freshman college 
transfer student, commented, "The 
representatives did a great job dis- 
tributing information to prospective 
students. They were very helpful/"

preciation Day, one of the most 
important social events, was 
cold, but successful! Students 
participated in competitive ac- 
tivities such as the rook tourna- 
ment, a "hot legs" contest, and 
volleyball games. In the gym, 
an award ceremony was given 
in honor of those students with 
high academic averages. Noth- 
ing could stop the SCC stu- 
dents, not even the cold winds, 
from celebrating THEIR DAY!

Student Appr> 

Alongside the beauty of changing fall colore and the Blue Ridge Parkway lay the effect© of Class 4 Hurricane Hugo. Few areas remained 
untouched by this tropical terror as it made it* way through Surry and surrounding counties Friday, Sept. 11, 1989- Tar Heels were iappe< 
of electricity and telephones from one day to three weeks in some parts of the state. 

16 Blue Ridge Parkway 

Hurricane Hugo came inland Friday, Sept. 22 at Charleston <SC), leveling 30 or so historical sites, 
uprooting 130-year-old City Hall, leaving thousands homeless and powerless. 

Upon leaving Charleston, Hugo reduced himself to a tropical storm and rapidly moved north through 
Charlotte (NC) at 90 mph. He left 200,000 there without power and struck down a 50-foot radio tower in 
Iredell County. 

Piedmont International Airport reported 54 mph wind gusts. By 6:30 a.m. all FM radio stations were off 
the air, except those powered by back-up generators. Battery-powered radios were the only available 
source of news and entertainment, even for Surry County, where power outages occurred as early as 6 a.m. 
and winds were already 35 mph. All Surry County schools and many businesses were closed for the first 
time due to a hurricane. 

Surry County was spare of Hugo's real wrath, but his effects were still felL Uprooted trees laid 
everywhere; debris and trash cluttered neighborhoods; traffic lights didn't function. Damage in the 
Carol inas totals $4 billion. No doubt, considerable time will pass before Hugo leaves anyone's mind. He 
will be recalled as both discomforter and destroyer.

One by one the tightly closed petals 

are opened 

by the insistent knocking of soft rain. 

One by one new worlds open to me 

through the insistent voices of a good teacher 

and I grow. 

I am forever changed, and better for it. 

The mind, like the bud, is made beautiful 

with its flowering. 

— Glenda Bobbins 

Graduation day is a goal realized. It is the link between yesterday's 
dreams and tomorrow's success. To don the traditional cap and gown 
is to receive recognition for academic achievements from faculty and 
peers and is indeed a magical moment filled with quiet pride. 

For some graduates it is the end to a long and arduous preparation 
for employment; for others it is only another link in the bridge to the 
future. Some will be students again tomorrow in colleges and univer- 
sities across the state as they prepare to be the best teachers, the best 
doctors, the best leaders in science and industry. For those students 
the dream lives on. Today's graduation becomes the building block to 
tomorrow's goal. 

22 Graduation 


The 1989 graduating class will remember SCC with a mixture of pride and regret: pride 
in themselves for academic achievement, and regret at leaving a warm haven of good 
friends and caring teachers. Students are members of a family at Surry and, like a family, 
they represent all ages and areas of interest. They have attended classes with fellow 
students whose ages range from 16 to 100. Fifty adults are over age 70, and six are over 80. 
They have all found a place at Surry to be comfortable with themselves and with each 
other. This year was a special one for all. Phi Theta Kappa, the national honor fraternity 
for two-year colleges, established a chapter here. The ASU chapter then awarded a $2,000 
scholarship to SCC graduate Mike Coble. 1989 also marked the twenty-fifth anniversity of 
Surry Community College. For those twenty-five years, in which the administration and 
faculty worked so tirelessly on behalf of all SCC students, the 1989 graduating class 
exemplifies one small measure of success. Of the 221 graduating members, 66 percent were 
honor graduates. 

Graduation 23 


Within every bridge are many links. Many links 
are also present within each individual. Each 
bridge's link shows a different structure while each 
link in an individual represents a different event in 
that person's life. 

The links in bridges and students are similar. In 
bridges, links are the structural format which makes 
the bridge into its whole. In students, the links are 
those individuals who mold a student into whoever 
he becomes. Those links are often teachers and per- 

The non-teaching personnel provide support, 
guidance, and helpful assistance. The cafeteria staff 
provides students with healthy, nutritious meals. 
The maintenance staff are the ones responsible for 
keeping the student environment healthy and clean. 
Those who open so many doors to SCC students' 
futures are the part-time and the full-time teachers. 
These teachers, along with all of the other important 
people, are the links to the future.

role as coordinator and educator of the Campus Learn- 
ing Center as she implements Adult Basic Education 
and GED programs essential to Surry County adults. 
"Without a good educational foundation these days r "

Gary Tilley, Small Business Center Director, 
has been an active SCC faculty member since 
1979. As he points out, "Small business plays a 
vital role in our state and economy" since more 
than 97 percent of all NC businesses employ less 
than 100 people. "Our purpose is to promote suc- 
cessful business expansion and new business for- 
mations that lead to new markets and more jobs in 
the local economy." 

A graduate of East Surry High and UNC-Chapel 
Hill, Tilley majored in economics and later re- 
ceived his master's degree from the University of 
South Dakota while serving a five-year Air Force

Department, he obtained a doctorate from UNC- 
G. He has also take coursework at SCC, Blackhill 
(South Dakota), and VPI. 

Despite his busy schedule, Tilley still takes time 
for faculty sports, his five children, and wife Con- 
nie, a speech therapist with the Surry County pub- 
lic schools. He is also a leader in the Mormon 
church to which he belongs.

JO Cafeteria 

Great food and good conversation provide a 
meaningful break for knowledge-hungry 
students. Surry Community College is the best 
place around to obtain real food for thought 
and to find well-balanced meals. Accompanying 
great food are competent cooks. You can be 
guaranteed that every day the cafeteria staff 
will be ready and willing to serve you with a 
smile and a hot, nutritious meal.

Where would we be without the dedicated, hard-working individuals of the maintenance staff: in total ruins? a 
trashy mess? an unhealthy environment with chaotic, unclean classrooms? 

Thanks to those responsible for cleaning various areas of the grounds, SCC doesn't have to worry about any of 
these possibilities. Most people take for granted the never-ending, daily tasks performed by this staff; but, the group 
is appreciated for adding an almost heavenly shine to the campus, which brings truth to the adage, "Cleanliness is 
next to Godliness."

Some bridges are constructed with blocks, A stu- 
dent's life is also constructed with blocks. Though 
both types of blocks are different, they are similar in 

In a bridge's life, those blocks give support, form, 
and quality. The blocks in a student's life basically 
provide the same. A student's blocks are the stu- 
dent's friends. 

For example, friends provide support by being 
there in times of sadness, joy, and grief. They are 
always willing to go that extra mile — no matter 
what the consequences. Also, friends give form or 
shape to others' lives by helping to draw everything 
into perspective. Friends are the shove behind the 
push. They are the shakers that motivate the movers. 
Most importantly, friends develop each other's qual- 
ities. The quality of an individual's success and per-

Each connection within a bridge is made to last the 
lifetime of the bridge. The connections are necessi- 
ties to help keep the bridge useful Such connections 
are concrete, steel, the individual links, and blocks. 
Connections have many purposes, A bridge can con- 
nect land to land, highway to highway, and railroad 
to railroad. The connections also can connect land 
over water, land over railroad, and highway over 
land. Any of these various connections can be re- 
versed. For example, land over railroad could be rail- 
road over land. 

Each student obtains and develops certain connec- 
tions. For example, English 101 is connected by 102 
and 103. The connections are important to a stu- 
dent's college curriculum. A student first made a 
connection when he began to talk. Throughout grade 
school, high school, and now college, students have 
been taking each connection and better developing 
their knowledge. 

Connections are very important to both bridges 
and students. They help to broaden horizons in the 
lives of both. The future for bridges looks promising 
because of its strong connections. Academics are the 
lifetime connections of a student. They add many 
new opportunities that are too great to be turned

A SCC student overcomes his natural fear of pain to donate a life-jrivinK Rift to 
someone he will never see. He and many other SCC students and faculty transform 
convictions into examples that we all should follow. 


Even Excellent Conviction 

Is Worthless, Until It is 
Transformed Into Example. 

The Surry County chapter of the Amer- 
ican Red Cross sponsored two blood drives 
at SCC on Nov. 2, 1989 , and again on Feb. 
7, 1990. The bloodmobile set up donation 
stations in the gymnasium and students 
were asked to meet the quota of 100 pints 
for each drive. 

The Red Cross blood donations aid can- 
cer patients, dialysis machine patients, or- 
gan transplants, and trauma victims. The 
Surry County chapter uses most of its do- 
nated blood for trauma victims. SCC stu- 
dents and faculty respond to these annual 
blood drives unselfishly, knowing that 
they truly axe giving the gift of life to their 
friends and neighbors*

Today's Goals Become Tomorrow's 
Achievements For SCC Student 

*'The biggest problem for 
students today is low self-es- 
teem and poor respect for 
themselves as people," com- 
mented Emily Lineback, a 
20-year-old Pilot Mountain 
native who strives to better 
herself and her world. Line- 
back exhibits great intelli- 
gence and emotion. The de- 
sire to succeed daily 
motivates her. She believes 
without goals one will be- 
come mediocre. 

Lineback Addresses the Question 
"Does bias exist in journalism?" 
during evening gown competition or 
the Miss El kin Valley Pageant held 
Fri-Sat., Nov. 10-11. 1089, in Dick- 
son Auditorium. 

Lineback's aims have be- 
come achievements and her 
achievements have become 
honors. She has won numer- 
ous awards for writing poetry 
and short stories. As a mem- 
ber of Phi Theta Kappa, a 
national honor society, she 
holds the office of vice-presi- 
dent. She recently placed as 
second-runner-up in the 
Miss El kin Valley Beauty 
Pageant. Other involve- 
ments include Phi Theta 
Kappa's Outreach Commit 
tee, the newspaper and year- 
book staffs, and Who's Who. 
Lineback expresses individ- 
uality through self-confi- 
dence and leadership.

Busy Student Lives To Achieve 
As Student, Model, Worker, Dad 

Charles Martin, a Boon- 
ville native, juggles two jobs, 
school work, and social life 
with confidence. A part-time 
student and model, a full- 
time employee and father, 
Martin exemplifies that hard 
work and patience pay off. 
At 28, he has worked at 
Douglas Battery in Winston- 
Salem for 9 years, has reared 
an 8-year-old daughter, has 
completed 3 years at SCC — 
majoring in Industrial Main- 

"Get with it and remember that 
nothing comes easily," Martin ad- 
vises. He firmly believes that a per- 
son should exercise his body as well 
as his mind Lo achieve complete fit- 

tenance — and has finished a 
few biathalon races this past 

Recollecting his teen years 
reminds Martin of the im- 
portance of life, to be his own 
person: a leader, not a fol- 
lower. Peer pressure has nev- 
er been a real problem for 
him because he believes in 
positive outlooks and self-es- 
teem. Individualism is also 
stressed through his words 
and wisdom. Occupying him- 
self with various jobs and ac- 
tivities, Martin has worked 
toward tremendously im- 
proving his personal and 
professional life. He now 
looks forward to the future.

Endurance, Determination, 

Strength, and Power 

Result in New Heights 

One of Surry's most outstanding ath- 
letes is sophomore Craig Hamlin, a 19- 
year-old Mount Airy native. Motivating 
the team and encouraging each player ta 
strive for victory, Hamlin participates as a 
member of the volleyball and basketball 
teams and plays golf and tennis. Playing 
the middle-hitter position, he has proven 
to be an important asset to the volleyball 
team. On the court Hamlin averages 25 
points per game as the basketball team's 
center. He is a leader and motivator off 
the court as well, as he coaches a boys* 
basketball team at Franklin Elementary 
School and helps organize a fellowship 
group of Christian students, 

Hamlin's advice for success is this: "When you de- 
vote your time to something special, whether it's 
playing sports or making good grades, make the most 
of your time and give 110 percent of yourself. You'll 
begin to realize that what you put into life, you'll gel

SCC English instructor, 
answers a question about 
students evaluation 

"Man can become man only by education. He is nothing 
but what education makes him. It is to be noted that man is 
educated only by men who themselves have been educated 
. . . Education is an art, the practice of which can become 
perfect only through many generations. Each generation, 
provided with knowledge of the preceding one, can more and 
more bring about an education, which will develop man's 
natural gifts in due proportion and relation to their end, and 
thus advance the whole human race towards its desti- 
ny." — Immanuel Kant (1803)

In celebration of changing leaves and human fellowship, the Autumn Leaves The Festtva I hosts 300,000 or so people viewing and bi 

Festival is held the second weekend of October each year. The Mt. Airy Chamber of arts/crafts and listening to local Btuegraiw i-.ysie, im 

Commerce initiated the three 'day event in 1967 at the suggestion of Dr. J. Dale that of the Easter Brothers. 

96 Autumn Leaves Festival 

Each year the annual Autumn Leaves Wagon Train gathers for a week of 
reliving the days of the horse and wagon. The wagons, horses, buggies, and 
mules are brought, driven, or ridden to camp. After camp is set and horses are 
bedded down for the night everyone heads to the corral to listen to the live 
band and possibly to dance to the music. 

After a night of dancing, everyone is ready to roll out their bed rolls to rest 
up for the day ahead. When morning comes, fires are started, meals are 
cooked, and horses are fed to prepare for the day's ride. The day consists of a 
15-20-mile ride through the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. 

After returning to camp, horses are watered, fed, and bedded down for the 
day ahead. Everyone is preparing for the last day's ride down Main Street, 
Mt. Airy, to start the annual Autumn Leaves Festival.

October 13-15 found visitors sampling food 
and people-watching. The Wagon Train 
began earlier in the week, providing some 
pretty memorable evenings.

A bridge's concrete foundations give structural 
support. The foundations provide the background in 
which a bridge is shaped. The solid concrete forms 
the reality of a bridge. There are no bridges made 
from silly putty. 

For a student, good, solid foundations are needed 
to give one*s life reality and structure. Here at SCC, 
some of these foundations are: the Student Govern- 
ment Association (SGA), Math Club, LEO, drama, 
newspaper, yearbook, Phi Theta Kappa, and Circle 
K, Any student who's involved in one or more of the 
various organizations around campus will tell you 
that just being a member is interesting, challenging, 
and fun. Clubs can also provide students with some- 
thing worthwhile to do with extra time. 

Bridges need concrete foundations to keep them 
from falling. Students need concrete foundations to 
help keep them active in campus activities. If it 
weren't for foundations, neither bridges nor students 
would properly function. Bridges are meant to be 
strong and sturdy. Concrete keeps them this way. 
Students are meant to be active in rewarding organi- 
zations. Clubs are the concrete foundations which 
provide learning experience in a student's life.

Math Club And LEO 

SCC's Mu Alpha Theta Society 
aJso known as the Math Club, has 
summed its knowledge to explort 
new applications related to math 
ematics. As the club multiplies in 
members, students gain an under- 
standing of mathematical prob- 
lems and math's historical back- 
ground. While students divide 
into different committees, the 
club as a whole group their inter- 
ests, share ideas, enter contests, 
and help high school students 
form their own math clubs. 

The Lambda Epsilon Omega, 
also known as LEO, is an SCC or- 
ganization that introduces law en- 
forcement policies and teaches ba- 
sic criminal justice issues. LEO 
allows young students to visit and 
talk with actual prison inmates at 
correctional centers and prisons. 
Members of LEO meet with other 
U.S. college students as a Criminal 
Justice Association.

The 1989-1990 academic year was 
the first in several that SCC offered 
German as a foreign language. 
Elementary German courses aim 
both at providing a solid foundation 
of grammar and vocabulary and at 
developing rudimentary conversation 
skills. After completing this course, 
first-year students should be able to 
read certain texts in German, engage 
in simple conversation, and ask for 
directions if visiting a German - 
speaking country. 
Instructor Bob Pugh is enthusiastic 
about the number of students 
enrolled in German, and a second- 
year German course is planned for 
the upcoming academic year.

Spanish is helpful to us not only when we 
travel to Spanish -speaking countries, but also 
right here at home. Due to the influx of Spanish- 
speaking immigrants, Spanish has become a 
critical communicative language in America. 

In elementary and intermediate Spanish 
courses, students learn the basics; pronunciation, 
conversational Spanish, numbers, verbs and their 
tenses. Reviewing skills such as listening, 
speaking, reading, and writing are points of 
emphasis. The study of Spanish-speaking people 
and areas and selected supplementary materials 
are included in the classes. 


French is an exciting language. Although it is 
not widely used in America, it is beneficial 
because it promotes fluent communication when 
traveling abroad in French-speaking countries. 

French I is an introduction to the basics: 
pronunciation, conversational French, vocabulary, 
and culture. Intermediate French is a review of 
listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills. 
Intensive grammar and vocabulary are also 
studied during this follow-up course. Daily

Dimensions are important to bridges. 
They are first formed in the blueprints. 
From these dimensions, great bridges are 
formed. The awe of the Golden Gate 
Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge did not 
derive spontaneously, but from thoughts 
on paper, blueprints. Dimensions are 
height, width, length, area, volume. By 
looking at a bridge, one can tell its dimen- 
sions from link to link. 

Dimensions are present in students' 
lives. First are bridges, developed in dif- 
ferent stages: links, blocks, foundations, 
dimensions. Sports provide exciting new 
dimensions to college life. Whether it's 
Softball, golf, volleyball, ping-pong, ten- 
nis, or basketball, sports are open to any- 
one with the desire to play competitively 
or to have fun. 

In bridges, dimensions are blueprints, 
giving form, especially height. In students,
